“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
i was thinking this morning in the shower
as i was soaping up with goddess peanut butter soap
i caught myself thinking about a zillion things ~
about work, about uni, about people,
i was thinking about everything except what i was doing
and i thought
what would happen if i was conscious when i took care of my body
how would it feel to think of my body lovingly when i nourished it?
my body is my temple
and yet i rarely mediate on it
my meditation is usually on transcending the body
i want to be more conscious of my body
i want to take care of it and nourish it and think loving thoughts
i want to be kind to my body
thank it for everything it does and is
not subexist in a mass of skin and blood with my mind everywhere else but there.
i talked to my dear friend emelisa a few days ago
and she talked about finally realising that it’s gotta be about everything ~ her mind and body and spirit ~ for things to work. and she talked about taking an afternoon paint love messages all over body.
all these things just got me thinking…
thoughts become things…
